Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’re aware of the growing popularity of Made in the USA products, especially now that President Trump is all for it. And if you’re in the NYC area, you must have seen a Made in NY sign at this point which is an organization that supports NYC’s fashion and manufacturing community. But have you heard of Made in New Jersey?!? Well, don’t worry because we didn’t either LOL.
What is Made in New Jersey all about?
It’s a new initiative taking place to help support the local NJ factories in order to keep their businesses going strong. Not only that, but it now has it’s very own dedicated week! Makers Row has decided to host an event on November 6th, 2017, during Made in NJ week, and we will be participating!
As a NJ based business and resident, I see more and more designers crossing the borders to have their collections made. We even made a few stops to some local NJ manufacturers during our NYC Fashion Bootcamp Masterclass last August 2017. With the garment district shrinking more and more, NJ just may be the new hot spot. Click To Tweet
When is the Made in New Jersey Event?
Join Maker’s Row and Rutgers’ Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CUEED) for “Made in New Jersey: Starting Your Collection Locally.” At the event, there will be panels, speakers, and networking time to help aspiring and current entrepreneurs reach their goals. Also in attendance will be several New Jersey factories, the Maker’s Row team, and representatives from CUEED. Food and beverages will also be available 🙂
Learn what it takes to start a clothing brand in NJ and meet your potential factory partner! You don’t want to miss this amazing event!
